If you are injured in an accident that was not your fault, and the injuries sustained were to your legs, then you may be able to make an injury claim using a compensation solicitor in Ashford-in-the-Water at Accident Advice Helpline to help you.
The bones in the bottom of your legs are called the tibia and fibular bones. The fibular being the bone that joins our foot to our leg via the ankle. If that particular bone should be broken, you are likely to experience a sudden onset of pain at the point of the break. You should try not to walk on it, but would that prove difficult anyway. The best course of action is to go straight to your local hospital for an x-ray to confirm the damage and have it treated.
How a fractured fibular might occur
This might occur when it receives a sudden impact which may happen in an accident of some sort, or when your ankle gets rolled. It is not a rare injury and is often sustained in combat sports, or landing from a fall awkwardly. In fact anything that causes stress to the bone usually results in a fractured fibular, and if that was caused by someone else, you may be able to make a personal injury claim using a compensation solicitor in Ashford-in-the-Water.
The initial pain from this type of fracture usually dulls quite quickly but painkillers and ice packs can help it on its way. Recovery is generally complete, although physiotherapy may be necessary. Sometimes other treatments are used to help, for example:
- The use of crutches
- Activity modification
- Taping or bracing
- A protective boot
- Exercises to improve strength and flexibility
- Ice or heat treatment
- Soft tissue massage
- Joint mobilisation
